You might want to email either David or Uncle Wilson @ Jaben and see whether you may be able to work something out regarding overseas payments

One more question: what can you say about CX300 (EP630) vs Sony MDR-EX51LP?
post #19 of 24
For metro...Go for cx300 outta you've suggested. Neither k26p, nor k81dj will not provide sufficient level of isolation for subway.
Folks who suggested ksc-75, px100...do you ever been in subway???

From what I've read around here the difference between the CX300 and EP630 in SQ is marginal.

CX300s go for $80 methinks while the X3 $57 shipped via http://www.jaben.net/

Now I'm waiting for EP-630 to appear in our shops, so decided to ask a few more questions:
1. What do you think about Beyerdynamic DTX 50?
2. I heard that EP-630 that come in this box (new version) has very bad sound compared with old version. Is this true?

Seems like nobody used DTX 50?

I have the k81dj and the px200. I prefer the k81dj by far. The px200 sound good if you can get a good fit. I have to wear it pulled way up to the front to get a decent seal and even then it doesn't isolate very well and lacks the slam of the k81dj. The cord on the k81dj also sucks, it is way too long. They are easy to recable though. The Denon D1000 looks interesting although I don't think it isolates very well, from what I have read.

need better noise isolation

Hi everybody! Again I need help from you. First, a little preface.
I bought EP-630, used them for several months. Then I decided to buy K518 (about 1 month ago).
Now I use only K518 because they are enough portable, and the sound is perfect. But still I have one problem with both EP-630 and K518 - they do not isolate well (for subway). There is an interesting fact: without music I can hear, that EP-630 isolate better, but when I turn on music it I can listen K518 with lower volume (I don't know why). So, I can say that they provide something like the same isolation.

But... I heard that balanced armature phones provide much better isolation than dynamic (like EP-630).
So, now I try to understand: can, for example, M-Audio IE-10 (IE-30), or other armature phones provide really better isolation than K518?
